Garden From The Inside is an artwork that depicts the viewer as inside the home. This choice of imagery reflects the lives we have lived for the past 2 years. It’s clear that the viewer is closed inside as you can see the glass shine over the windows. However, the artwork shows the links between the outside and inside; as there is reference from the colours of the flowers in the vase to the flowers out in the garden. Evoking a sense that the viewer has been in both spaces. I chose to make the inside the focus with the dried flowers sitting near the window showing why gardens can be so important to our homes. They not only give us something to look forward to but also get us outside in nature, giving the viewer the feeling of calm and serenity.
A life-long artist, LucyAnn is always looking for opportunities to translate the everyday into artistic expression. After completing her formal art studies in 2013 at Queensland University of Technology LucyAnn’s passion for creating has seen her continue learning and developing her practice through working with other artists and independently. Having grown up on the Sunshine Coast and currently living in Central Queensland, she employs a range of styles and aesthetic from portraiture to landscapes. LucyAnn’s passion is to capture the essence of the people and animals in her portraits and to explore the evocative aspects of landscapes. LucyAnn works in several mediums from acrylic, watercolour, and oil paint to graphite, charcoal and coloured pencil. She looks to create art that communicates messages with an appealing aesthetic.
